Bregenzerwald is one of the main regions in the Province of Vorarlberg, Austria. Geologically, the Bregenzerwald is a mountain range of the Northern Limestone Alps, specifically the northern flysch zone. It is the drainage basin of the Bregenzer Ach river. The main villages in Bregenzerwald are Bezau – the regional capital – Alberschwende and Egg. Alberschwende as a historic Hofsteig formerly was not part of the Bregenzerwald region.


Bregenzerwald is best known as a skiing resort, but other attractions include the Bregenzerwalder Cheese Route or the Schubertiade festival for classical music in Schwarzenberg. The Bregenzerwald attracts those in search of unspoiled nature, old traditions and genuine hospitality.
